The Three Most Common Excel Headaches, and an Aspirin-free Approach to Eliminating Them

by Mike Nieburg in All Blog Posts, Spreadsheets

The Three Most Common Excel Problems EASA Solves Excel is universally loved for its flexibility, power and agility, but probably nearly as universally loathed for three problems it can create when users attempt to share critical spreadsheets, namely: 1. Lack of version control: Most of us have personally experienced the scenario of losing track of […]

The dilemma: Replace Excel with dedicated software for configuration, pricing & quoting (CPQ)? Maybe not…

by Mike Nieburg in All Blog Posts, Software Integration

Replace Excel with dedicated software? There are situations when Excel is an ideal solution for CPQ, for example when your configuration mix is small and uncomplicated, with few people generating proposals and tight budgets for software investments. But as you scale up to a larger group of users, with increasing proprietary information, need for approvals [...]Read more

What is Democratization of Simulation and Model Deployment – and why bother doing it?

by Sebastian Dewhurst in All Blog Posts, Democratization

What is Democratization of Simulation and Model Deployment? First, let’s start with some definitions. What is “democratization” (in this context anyway)? What is simulation? Is it different to modeling? Is democratization the same as deployment? And what on Earth is “appification”? Once we’ve covered the “what”, then maybe the “why” will have more context… “Democratization” […]
